In December, the Supreme Court handed down a unanimous victory for prosecutors in Salman v. U.S. The Court’s decision did not fully resolve some difficult issues in tipper-tippee law that arose after the Second Circuit’s 2014 decision in U.S. v Newman, which had limited the scope of insider trading prosecutions. Our panelists will react to the decision in Salman and discuss the current state of insider trading law.
Corporate and business law is reputed to be a profession dominated by men. Even as firms have made strides towards inclusiveness, the gender gap persists. Our speakers will explore the reasons for this and try to separate myth from reality. What are the ways in which the profession has discouraged or forestalled more women from choosing a career in corporate or business law? How should women with an interest in business law approach these issues? What role do law schools have to play in this effort? Our speakers have different experience and approach these issues from different perspectives.

In the wake of several high-profile corporate scandals and government prosecutions, corporate compliance continues to grow in interest and importance to business organizations. Compliance professionals spend much of their time working to ensure that compliance programs are well-tailored to their firm and effective for management, employees, and customers. Compliance policies and procedures must be appropriately drafted, implemented, and enforced. But as the importance of corporate compliance grows, there is no consensus on what constitutes an effective compliance program.
Consumers of financial products and services may face a variety of problematic practices, from abusive collection attempts to fraud to oppressive loan terms that leave debtors unable to meet their basic needs. This program will focus on the available methods for addressing these concerns, including arbitration, courts, advocacy groups, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, as well as the limitations and challenges with each avenue of consumer financial protection, particularly in light of the new political era.
